M.Video Plans 60% of Earnings as Dividends

Home electronics retailer M.Video said Thursday that it aimed to pay 60 percent of earnings in annual dividends.

"In the past we followed a policy of a moderate annual dividend along with an extra dividend when the company had additional funds. We … believe the company should increase the annual dividends to a payout ratio of 60 percent," M.Video chairman, Peter Gyorffy, said in a statement.

The company also said its board recommended to pay 13.8 rubles ($0.42) per share, or a total of about 2.5 billion rubles, in the next annual dividend, adding the payout will represent 60 percent of net profit.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
